I should win some kind of award for this.

i don't think i care for this. something about the dissonance of an electro-mechanical apparatus featuring rendered film scenes...it's a strange mashup.

easthaven in peace is a great track from icewind dale.

what we need is green screen pinball tables with glasses we wear so we see the cool play Fields and have physical ball moving around but alas the future not here yet

This is as insane as digital pinball tables should be.

Edited by EvilBuddyHolly

Looks good! Will have to check it out!

Edited by fox01313

If I remember right, there were star wars pinball tables made years ago, think with the quality of tables on pinball fx2 & the other digitally recreated tables, I'd rather have those over this new one.

Edited by zoozilla

Man, this looks totally insane.

I may try it out even though I'm not really into pinball.

I wish there was some way I could watch Brendan Sinclair play this. If only he worked in the same building as the giantbomb guys...

I don't like it either. This would be way cooler if it was a Pinball Arcade style simulated table, even if the table being simulated was never actually built.

When they do the Empire Strikes Back remake, it's gonna all take place on a pinball table.

That Darth Vader quote at the beginning is an oddly deep cut for a promotional trailer.

I give the fake Vader voice a C+ for effort.

IT'S A TRAP!

I can't decide if that looks awesome or incredibly distracting.

Sweet baby Jesus I'm buying this as soon as possible.

Edited by Nephrahim

So, uh, none of the voices are from the movies, are they? They all sound fake.

Uhhh what? Pinball FX2 (Xbox) is the exact same as Zen Pinball 2 (PS3/Vita), but simply re-branded. Aside from the name and the fact that the PS3 version supports cross-platform purchases with your Vita, they are exactly the same thing.

They weren't made "years ago" or anything. The Star Wars tables are coming out on the exact same date later this month for both platforms.

I don't know if it's more telling about me or about the trajectory of Star Wars as a franchise, but I think I'm more excited about this than just about any other Star Wars product in recent history.

Edited by redefaulted

That actually looks like a fun pinball table. Developers never seem to go far enough when it comes to a digital table, and this looks like a milestone.

Jeff has mentioned many times in the past regarding Pinball FX2/Zen Pinball 2, and Pinball Arcade, and I generally agree with him. Pinball Arcade is great if you want actual tables with actual pinball simulation, and Pinball FX2 isn't bad but doesn't seem to have the best physics and never truly goes crazy enough for fake pinball tables either.

While I do wish the tables were crazier and the physics were better, I still think Pinball FX2 plays fine and can easily sink a lot of hours into some of their tables. Not only that, but the tables are also generally inexpensive too, and the scoring/leaderboard stuff surrounding the platform is still really solid.

I still think that first run of Marvel Pinball tables are still really good, especially the Spiderman table and the Blade tables.

Do people buy these things based on the IP?

Maybe it's a tradition thing, but I really don't get acquiring licenses to big names, just to turn them into digital pinball. I mean this isn't going to attache people like I must assume big names on pinball machines used to. This wont be standing at a bar, or in somebodies living room or whatever.

People who buy this must really be into Pinball, can't see someone randomly browsing the marketplace and say "Wow cool, a star was pinball thing" and buy it solely on it's connection with Star Wars.

Wow, the music gave me a flashback, but to the SNES game. I guess I probably spent a lot more time playing the SNES game than the films but still, feels weird.

And here I thought that the new site would fix the video player problems :/

Ahh well, there's always the next redesign!

Will have to pick this up. Looks good.

Posted by rand0mZer00

On a completely unrelated note, the pizza parlor my brother works at still has a functioning Twilight Zone table. I still play it every chance I get.

Oh, and this looks pretty cool.

Posted by natureboy46

A combination of two of my favorite things. Can't wait.

Posted by Roddykat

Most impressive...the voice work is alright, but still kinda distracting.

Posted by melodiousj

Uh... so... do you actually play pinball at any point?

Posted by djames216

I like the original Star Wars movies but I wouldn't say I was a big fan. But it seems to me that using other actors for the voices is a dis-service to the fans that would be in to this. Perhaps there are additional legal (and maybe financial?) hoops to jump through if they wanted to sample voice work from the original films? I have no idea, does anyone else have any insight into this?

Edited by jaks

I wish that was a real table mmmnnnnnggghhhh

Sans the live action stuff. Oh fuck it, with the live action stuff!

Posted by Vuud

Awww, I clicked hoping to see a real pinball table in the GB office.

Edited by RareMonkey

is this part of zen pinball 2?

Edited by President_Barackbar

The sound-alike voices REALLY threw me off. Since its an officially licensed table and those lines are LITERALLY the same lines from the movie, why didn't they just pull the lines directly from the films?

Looks nice and crazy, too bad it's going to have Zen/FX's shitty physics. Ball feels like it's made of air. I'll stick with Pinball Arcade's Star Trek TNG table for my dorky franchise on a pinball machine fix.

Did I miss part of this conversation? Where did fox mention Zen pinball? I got the impression he was talking about physical pinball tables.

Anyways, the voices didn't sound very good to me in the trailer and were really distracting. Still gonna buy it and probably love it though.

Posted by Kinapuff

Am I the only one beyond sick of the star wars opening theme along with the logo fading backwards?

It feels beyond overdone and pasé even for Star wars properties.

Posted by bobafettjm

Oh man I really want these. I have been playing a ton of Pinball FX 2 lately.

Posted by Senate4242

So very loud..

Not sure I how I feel about this. And they couldn't even get the voice tracks from the movies?

This is one creepy ass picture of Mark Hamill.
